Red Deer aesthetics pro debunks 3 Neuromodulator myths!

Considering Botox? Here’s what to expect!

If you hear the word “Botox” and your mind immediately jumps to a “frozen face”– you’re falling into a common neuromodulator misconception.

To help set the record straight, Sarah Noble from Red Deer’s Iconic Beauty offers her expert advice to debunk three botox myths, which is the most common neuromodulator used to treat fine lines and wrinkles.

Myth #1: Neuromodulators (like Botox) prevent you from moving your face

To understand and debunk this myth, it’s important to first know what Botox is and what it does.

“Botox is one of the most popular neuromodulators used – it works by preventing the signal between the nerve and muscle that causes it to contract. By intercepting this signal and minimizing its frequency, it allows fine lines and wrinkles to smooth out,” Noble explains.

Simply put, Botox isn’t going to stop your face from moving; instead, it temporarily relaxes facial muscles that underlie and cause wrinkles.

Whether you want to use injections as a preventive measure in your mid-20s, or to help achieve a younger, more rejuvenated appearance, Botox can be effective at reversing or minimizing the appearance of wrinkles that typically appear with maturity, such as the dreaded “11s,” frown lines, crows feet, and other telltale signs of aging.

Myth #2: Neuromodulators, such as Botox, will last forever

While the benefits of Botox can appear in the first few days following treatment, typically peaking at four weeks, they gradually decline after 3 to 4 months, which is why re-treatment is required. In short, the clinical effects are transient!

“A lot of people think that once they get Botox, their face is going to be ‘stuck’ like that – which is not the case at all. The effects of Botox aren’t permanent, which is why you need to return for re-treatment,”

with appropriate dosage and treatment you can have a soft effect

Noble explains.

Myth #3: Neuromodulators, including Botox injections, are painful

While there may be some discomfort during and after treatment, Botox should not hurt. The injections can cause small amounts of swelling, redness, or bruising and you may experience a temporary bump, but these mild effects are so common they’re actually considered a normal part of the process. And the key word for the side-effects is that they are temporary, they will eventually disappear!

And, by providing every client with pre-care, post-care and tips for protecting results and reducing side-effects, the expertly trained staff at Iconic Beauty puts you in good hands.
